The leader of our evangelism team Steve Sanchez, and I, had a meeting over coffee one afternoon; I wanted to share some of my testimony with him. Little did I realize he had a challenge waiting for me. He said, “On your way to work today I want you to stop by the AMC theater where the crowds are lining up for the new Pirates of the Carribean” movie, and pass out Gospel tracts to them all… then do a little open air preaching to the crowd.”
Wow…. I was pinned down with a challenge that I could not back away from. I told him, “I will do it this one time.” I don’t like doing anything before going to work; I like my comfort zone.
I went there and sure enough there was a mass of humanity waiting for the movie. I passed out the tracts, then stood up and started speaking, “Excuse me! May I have your attention please!” Once I had all their attention I presented an entire Gospel presentation. The experience was awsome!
Afterward, a couple of Christian guys came out of the line and told me they were inspired by my boldness for the Lord. I told them, “If it wasn’t for my pastor I would not even be there.” lol.
